This coming weekend, on the night of November 16, 2012 and the morning of November 17, 2012, are the Leonids. The Leonids are the result of Earth passing through the tail of comet Tempel Tuttle. To find the meteors from the Leonids you want to look toward the constellation of Leo.
The Leonids are usually not very impressive, averaging only 10 - 15 meteors per hour, but this is more than a typical night without a shower. The good thing this weekend is that the Moon will be below the horizon. Light from the Moon can flood the sky, limiting the number of visible meteors. The lack of Moon will give a darker sky and a greater opportunity to observe meteors.
